Shibu Hotel takes pride in its emphasis on gratitude, conscientiousness, propriety, attention to detail, and its ability to meet demands. It is the aim of the Shibu Hotel to be a "heartwarming hotel".

Shibu Onsen is surrounded by the Five Peaks of Northern Nagano mountain range and the Shiga Highlands. The hot springs has a 1300-year history and welcomes you with a nostalgic atmosphere.

Shibu Hotel greets you with a warm welcome and a warm farewell. 
The 3rd generation owner has carried on this this spirit of "omotenashi" that has been a keystone of the Shibu Hotel since its founding. From each of the rooms, guests can enjoy the seasonal views of hills and river. The rooms themselves are not particularly fancy, but they emit a feeling of nostalgia that beckons you to a peace and quiet unconstrained by time.

We run natural hot springs all night long in the bathhouse. The indoor bath is an old-fashioned style atrium made of cypress, the outdoor bath is enclosed by a bamboo fence, and a private bath is also available for our guests. All of our baths overflow with the spring waters drawn from the onsen. 

Meals are served in the traditional Japanese kaiseki (full course meal) style with seasonal Northern Nagano ingredients collected locally.

Why not stay at our simple yet heartwarming accommodations where the Showa era atmosphere invites you to take the time to relax.

It was a nice accommodation. I was able to spend comfortably with moderately friendly with proper chitin. I would appreciate having a hairdryer in the room if possible (depending on the room?). Because the spa town is also attractive, I thought it would be nice to have a dumpling or stall for the outside walk in winter. When I go to Shibu Onsen I would like to stay here again.
